Focusing on literary texts produced from 2000 to 2009, Lorraine Ryan examines the imbrication between the preservation of Republican memory and the transformations of Spanish public space during the period from 1931 to 2005. Accordingly, Ryan analyzes the spatial empowerment and disempowerment of Republican memory and identity in Dulce Chacón’s Cielos de barro, Ã?ngeles López’s Martina, la rosa número trece, Alberto Méndez’s ’Los girasoles ciegos,’ Carlos Ruiz Zafón ́s La sombra del viento, Emili Teixidor’s Pan negro, Bernardo Atxaga’s El hijo del acordeonista, and José María Merino’s La sima. The interrelationship between Republican subalternity and space is redefined by these writers as tense and constantly in flux, undermined by its inexorable relationality, which leads to subjects endeavoring to instill into space their own values. Subjects erode the hegemonic power of the public space by articulating in an often surreptitious form their sense of belonging to a prohibited Republican memory culture. In the democratic period, they seek a categorical reinstatement of same on the public terrain. Ryan also considers the motivation underlying this coterie of authors’ commitment to the issue of historical memory, an analysis which serves to amplify the ambits of existing scholarship that tends to ascribe it solely to postmemory.

"Gabriel García Márquez meets Umberto Eco meets Jorge Luis Borges for a sprawling magic show." --The New York Times Book Review A New York Times Bestseller Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets--an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love. “ Anyone who enjoys novels that are scary, erotic, touching, tragic and thrilling should rush right out to the nearest bookstore and pick up The Shadow of the Wind. Really, you should.” --Michael Dirda, The Washington Post "Wonderous... masterful... The Shadow of the Wind is ultimately a love letter to literature, intended for readers as passionate about storytelling as its young hero." --Entertainment Weekly (Editor's Choice) "One gorgeous read." --Stephen King From the Trade Paperback edition.

After decades of uncomfortable silence, Spain has now started dealing with its violent twentieth-century past. In recent years, a vibrant memory discourse has emerged in Spanish society: the number of films, TV series, newspaper articles, history books, and memorials dedicated to the Civil War of 1936-1939 and the ensuing dictatorship of Franco has increased dramatically. Literature has also played its part in provoking and maintaining this memory boom, and as a consequence, the study of contemporary Spanish novels has started revolving around questions on the responsibility of the author, on the impact of literature in society, on its role in shaping memories, and on its ethical status. This book takes up these questions in an attempt to combine the outlook of collective memory studies with the theoretical demands of Poststructuralist theories. Focusing on themes such as haunting and the uncanny, nostalgia, the "Bildungsroman "genre, and autobiography, its author analyses memory narratives in fourteen novels by foremost Spanish authors like Javier Marias, Luis Goytisolo, Enrique Vila-Matas, and Manuel Vicent."

Ensayo del año 2006 en eltema Romanística - Español, literatura, cultura general, Nota: Gut, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Romanische Sprachen und Literaturen), Materia: La Sombra del Viento, 4 Citas bibliográficas, Idioma: Español, Resumen: El tema central de este trabajo es la función de la violencia y de la maldad en La Sombra del Viento, la cuarta novela de Carlos Ruiz Zafón, con la que el autor ha tenido mucho éxito desde su publicación. La novela, que está claramente influenciada por el género gótico y se desarrolla entorno a la solución de un misterio por parte de un niño, se sirve de la violencia como leitmotiv. Lo maligno aparece en diferentes formas: la guerra, las persecuciones, la tortura, el diablo. En las siguientes páginas analizaré más detalladamente algunos de estos temas para aclarar cómo el narrador los utiliza en la construcción de su cuento y qué reacción provocan en el lector. Primero analizaré la manera en la que el narrador construye la ciudad de Barcelona y la atmósfera en la que los personajes se mueven. Después me concentraré en la figura del diablo que está presente dos veces en la novela: en el personaje ficticio de Laín Coubert y en el inspector Fumero. En estas figuras, la maldad está representada de dos formas diferentes. En el caso de Laín Coubert, el narrador identifica lo malo con algo inexistente, un principio transcendente e inexplicable para el ser humano. El diablo, así como la religión católica lo representa y como está descrito en el caso de Coubert, es algo irreal, lejano que amenaza y da miedo sin que el hombre pueda entender sus razones. Por el contrario, Fumero es un personaje que representa una tipología di hombre común, por eso su crueldad es injustificada y terrible. Su venganza no tiene explicación, lo cual aumenta el terror en la gente que ha tenido la mala suerte de enfrentarse con él, como aclara Fermín, contando de las marcas que las torturas le han dejado en el cuerpo y en el alma.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,3, Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf (Romanisches Seminar), 27 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Jahr 2001 erschien in Spanien im Barceloniner Verlag Planeta der Roman eines bis dahin kaum beachteten Autors: Carlos Ruiz Zafón. Der Titel: La Sombra del Viento. Innerhalb kurzer Zeit konnte man den Titel ganz oben auf den nationalen Bestsellerlisten finden. Das mittlerweile in der 50. Auflage gedruckte Buch wurde nach und nach auch zu einem internationalen Erfolg. In der Zwischenzeit in über 20 Sprachen übersetzt und in mehr als 40 Ländern publiziert, rangiert der Roman Zafóns neben Werken von Gabriel García Márquez, Isabel Allende und Umberto Eco. Die Hintergründe dieses überraschenden Erfolges sind Gegenstand der vorliegenden Arbeit. Es fallen dem aufmerksamen Leser deutliche Ähnlichkeiten mit Eduardo Mendozas La Ciudad de los Prodigios auf, ein Roman, der in den 1980er Jahren hochgelobt und unterdessen als gutes Beispiel postmoderner spanischer Literatur angesehen wird. Es wird Zafón vorgeworfen, sich des Plagiats schuldig gemacht und somit eine Erfolgsgarantie „eingebaut“ zu haben. Wie La Ciudad auch enthält der Roman Elemente aus verschiedenen Romangattungen, darunter historischer Roman, Kriminalroman, Liebesroman, Stadtroman, Märchen und Schauerroman. Ob es diese Mischung der verschiedenen Genres ist, die den Publikumserfolg begründet, gilt es, mithilfe der Analyse zu klären.
